EnviroAtlas is a collection of interactive tools and resources that allows users to explore the many benefits people receive from nature, also called ecosystem services. Though critically important to human well-being, these benefits are often overlooked. EnviroAtlas lets users access, view, and analyze information to better understand how various decisions can affect an array of ecological and human health outcomes.

EnviroAtlas includes a multi-scaled Interactive Map with broad scale data for the lower 48 states and fine scale data for selected communities. The site also has the Eco-Health Relationship Browser, which shows the linkages between ecosystems, the services they provide, and human health.

This is a collaborative project developed by researchers at the Environmental Protection Agency in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the USDA Forest Service, Landscope America, and other agencies and organizations.
